Hugh Freeze made at least a dozen calls to female escort services, based on review

When Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork made light of the “concerning pattern” of calls that Hugh Freeze made to female escort services, it wasn’t immediately clear how many times that occurred.

The details behind those calls made by his university-issued phone were a little fuzzy, although there have been reports that they were 110 percent for his personal use, had nothing to do with recruiting and were made when he was out of Oxford.

On Tuesday, it was revealed that there were at least 12 calls made to numbers associated with erotic services dating back to 2014, according to Kyle Bonagura of ESPN, which obtained Freeze’s phone records through an open records request.

Further details from ESPN show that the calls date back to April 2014 and didn’t last more than two minutes.

During the press conference that made Freeze’s resignation official, Bjork pointed out that the school initially thought one of Freeze’s calls was a misdialed number. However, a deeper dive led Ole Miss to believe that it happened on more than one occasion.
